The North Face has released a short video about inspiring 12-year-old Aussie rock climber, Angie Scarth-Johnson.

ANGIE SCARTH-JOHNSON is an Australian rock climber based in the Blue Mountains, NSW.

At just 12 years old, Angie has been climbing for five years and continues to push herself and the boundaries of the sport. She has accomplished incredible feats in the climbing world, becoming the youngest person to climb a grade 31 at age nine. Since then, in a steady progression, she has climbed grade 32 at age 10 and grade 33 at age 11.

She balances her life of travel, training and climbing with school and friends, but says she often learns more through travel and the outdoors than she does in a classroom.
